Called by the Spirit of God to take part unto the marriage supper of the Lamb of God and… unto the divine marriage

Rev. 19:9, “And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb. And he saith unto me, These are the true sayings of God.”
When the time of the formation of the marriage of God’s Lamb has come, God will call His Church to take part unto this marriage supper. By this God will bring about unto us His perfect redemption of all power of sin by our willingly taking part in this divine supper. By doing so we will get redeemed, already here on earth, from all spot and wrinkle of sin, being so wash in His blood perfectly. Only hereafter He is able to share His marriage with us. I may draw your attention to God’s Word, that referring to this quotation, it tells us, that He calls us to the supper of the marriage of His Lamb, of Jesus Christ in His function of Lamb of God. This tells us, that we, by taking part in this spiritual marriage, have to take communication with His death and resurrection on Golgotha (i.e. Calvary), by which we also will get to the death of our sinful self perfectly.
Eph. 5:26-27, “That He might sanctify and cleanse it (i.e. the Church) with the washing of water by the word (of God), That He might present it to Himself a glorious church, not having spot, or wrinkle, or any such thing; but that it (i.e. the Bride-church) should be holy and without blemish.”
When we want to take part in this marriage of the Lamb, we have to experience His perfect redemption of the power of sin, even unto the deepest depth of our being by the washing in the shed blood of God’s Lamb, brought about by the Holy Spirit. Not before this cleansing perfectly has been done He is able to clothe us with His divine glory and majesty, and fill our inner being with His divine justice, so revealing His divine nature IN and TROUGH us. This, the Bible calls the revelation of the sons of God.[1]
Rom. 8:18-19, “For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God (see note1).”
Isa. 60:1-3, “Arise (don’t stay asleep spiritually), shine; for thy Light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and His glory shall be seen upon thee (i.e. the Bride).[2] And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.”

The 7 spiritual steps we have to make with our Lord to accomplish in His power this perfect sanctification and marriage with God’s Lamb – here on earth

  1. Not only do we have to convert ourselves unto God and have faith in Him and in His Word, but we also have to open our heart and being for our Lord Jesus Christ. By doing so He is able to bring about His finished work on Golgotha (i.e. Calvary) in our heart and being. By this graceful work in our heart and life we at last will perfectly take part in His death and resurrection and will at last totally die from our sinful life up to the deepest parts of our subconscious. May we die before this sanctification has been brought about unto us by the Spirit of God, so the rest of this way of our cross He will recount unto us.

Rev. 3:20 “Behold, I stand at the door (of your heart), and knock: if any man hear My voice, and open the door (of the heart), I will come in to him and will sup[3] with him, and he with Me.”
The above mentioned is what He meant by saying: Then I will sub with him and he with Me.

  1. This contact with the Lord WE have to persist, so HE is able to share with us His divine work in our sinful heart and being perfectly.

2 Cor. 4:10-11,Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the (resurrection)life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are always delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the (resurrection)life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh (so: here on earth).”

  1. WE also have to persist in bearing about His finished work in our being: His death and resurrection for us.

Luk. 9:23, “And He said to them all, If any man will come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me.”
“Our” cross is our free participation in His death and resurrection, so we are able to die indeed from our sinful old life. This way of our cross we have to bring about fully – in His strength – and our Lord Jesus Christ will continually lead us on this way. In case we would die before we reach the end of this road, the rest of this road is granted to us and counted as if we finished it.

[1] Also daughters (of God) will become – if they are perfect ‘in Him’ – (spiritual) sons of God. It is the so called male maturity: “the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ” (Eph. 4:13). And, when we have entered the eternity, there are no mariages anymore, nor is there intercourse between man and woman, because  no propagation is needed there.

[2] Compare this verse with The Song of Solomon (the book about the Bride and the Bridegroom) 6 verse 10: “Who is she that looketh forth as the morning, fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners?” Compare this verse also with Revelation 12 verse 1.

[3] “The marriage or wedding supper of the Lamb”, see Rev. 19:9.
